The afternoon session was left to the EVANS boys firstly Ethan swimming a nice heat in the 200 fly just missing his pb but progressing to the final as 6th fastest. The elder brother Luke then took to the arena for his 400m free gaining a large long course pb. Between both Dyfan Jones and Ethan Evans and a relay team apart from last night the club has had a finalist in every session a great effort Dragons. In the 200 Fly final little Ethan upped his game finishing 6th in the final but swam a 6 second pb. He is now going off for a well earned steak. As is the coach.
